Poem “Swallow the Night” by Ryan Flett

Swallow the Night

Full moon tonight has
chased away
the clouds from the sky,
and the stars above
twinkle
in the water below.

I cup a handful of
stars and
bring it to my lips,
swallowing them whole
hoping
I'll shine just as brightly.

He currently work as a registered nurse and as a programmer at a small video game company a friend and his founded this year. Writing has always been a passion of his, and he has found poetry is the ideal way for me to express myself.
